We have already learnt about Fractions. Let us recall that a fraction is a part of a whole. It is a number of the form a/b, where ‘a’ is called the numerator & ‘b’ is the denominator. We also know that fractions may be like or unlike fractions. Like fractions are the fractions with same denominator, example 2/3, 5/3, 4/3, 1/3 are like fractions. While, unlike fractions are the fractions with different denominators, example, 2/5, 6/5, 4/3, 1/5 are unlike fractions.
Now a question arises – Can unlike fractions be changed to like fractions? The answer is yes. We can change unlike fractions to like fractions by making their denominator same.
